Not very keen to visit such museum unless I have prior knowledge. Nevertheless, the guide included this as part of the itinerary, and since we know who is Aung San Suu Kyi, no harm for us to just take a look. The place is not very big, but has a driveway and a garden area at the surrounding. The building is just 2 storey but quite well curated. Do note the simplicity life style of the people at that point of time. More or less can relate since we were also part of the British colonies and can appreciate the building structure and environment. Can see the family photos of Gen Aung San and his family, including Aung San Suu Kyi.

The museum is the house where Aung San lived the last few years of his life and is definitely worth a visit. There is a great deal of information to read about his life along with some of his original belongings and excellent photographs of him and his young family on display. The entrance fee is 5000 Kyats.

For those studying Myanmar or those in a curious mood to know the struggles of this beautiful country can take a tour of the house of the man who fought for it. National Hero Aung San is regarded as the founding father of modern Myanmar. The place has a number of personal belongings and artifacts. There are some interesting photos of the life and times of Bogyoke Aung San.

No guid etehre so you can read up before and can purchase books there. getting there might be a difficult as its a little inside getting a local to tell them in Burmese as to you want to go "Aung San" house and not his daughter SuU Kyi's house would help.

You can't go to Myanmar without going here. it's the historic navel of the Nation. A good range of interesting texts that have been translated into English are available.

No photos allowed on the grounds.

Interesting, nostalgic, historic displays and artefacts are exhibited around the place including curious personal effects.

Don't miss it. It's really important.

General Aung San, the architect of Myanmar’s independence and father of the now famous Aung San Suu Kyi, lived here during the period of Myanmar’s independence with his family.
It is a stunning early art-deco style house set an a hill with much of the original furniture remaining. Note the beautiful internal staircase.
Architecturally the house is inspiring and the rooms are simply furnished with genuine pieces from the era.
While only a short visit, it is well worth the time as it really connects you with the human face of the man behind the independence movement.
The house also witnessed the famous family double tragedy as well, which makes the historical and spiritual connection even more real.
The 5000 kyat ($3.50) entry fee helps maintain the house and it is just a short taxi ride from downtown. The house is set in a beautiful residential area of Yangon.
I spent a very enjoyable hour wandering around.

This is used to be Gen. Aung San's home and now it's Gen. Aung San museum to show their lifestyle. It was closed till 2012 and reopened as museum after democracy. It is a nice western style 2 storied house. Some photos are hanged to the wall and you'll learn the history from them... For example, Gen. Aung San wearing uniform of Japanese military ( he went to Japan to learn military operation), and Gen. Aung San's wife wearing Shan tribe's costume.
Photography is not allowed inside and you have to store it to locker.
Opening hour is 10 to 16 from Wed. to Saturday. Entrance fee is 300Kyat.
You can walk from Shwedagon Paya, though the route is not that easy or clear.

Lucky me, the museum was just opened since it used to be open only 1 day per year. The museum is the house where Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was born and sent her first years. The house is still in a good state, despite the earthquake that hit the area including the house a few years ago. I really enjoyed all the pictures on the wall, which showed more of her father Bogyoke Aung San and his family. The furniture they used is still there, even the bed Aung San Suu Kyi used to sleep in. The house also gives you an idea how 'rich' people lived in the early days. Interesting and worth a visit!

Old-english influence to this traditional home which was HQ to General Aung San prior to his assasination in 1947. His son drowned on the premises. Each room holds treasures of the era. Entrance is almost free! - about $1US.
